Literature discussion groups, journals, fluency rubrics, and vocabulary mastery are terms we are all familiar with as elementary educators who teach students to read.  We often hope by teaching them to read we will help spark a love of reading.  However, the reality is that some students dislike reading and are disengaged from this subject.  So why not spice up your reading instruction with some easily integrated tech tools that will have your students asking for more?

If you’re tired of the same old reading instruction, why not explore Tech’d Up Reading Strategies? This course will examine easy tools to place into your existing reading curriculum to engage your students and create eager readers.  We will explore tools for increasing fluency, comprehension, word study, as well as tools for holding literature discussions.  Stop lugging home class sets of journals, and start inspiring your students to read and work collaboratively online to become masters of their own reading.
